    I've made the VERY tough decision to sell the car. I'm going back to full-time starving student status in September, and I won't be able to work, and thus, won't be able to afford my loan/visa/insurance/fuel payments. Here's a copy of the ad I placed in the AutoTrader.

      87 Ford Mustang LX
      Total restoration, $23k invested, 2000km's on parts, Carb'd 306, ported GT-40s, custom exhaust, 150hp nitrous, MSD, Holley fuel sys, elec fan, 3-core rad. 5 spd hurst, King Cobra clutch, alum DS, 3.73's, full suspension/brake upgrades. Corbeau seats, 6 Autometer gauges. Performance Red paint, Cobra R hood, new lens's. Sleeper look, Z06 killer, Calgary.

    Yes, that's right....a total steal at only $16,000 cdn. Inquiries can be made by, e-mail: mustang@kveder.net, or phone: (403) XXX-XXXX.

    Noticed that the valve-cover breather on the driver's side seemed to be falling out. Took off the cover to find out why. Wow, Crane rockers... Never seem 'em before. Everything looks good, nice and clean. Check it out for yourself, here. Also, notice the somewhat clean engine bay, here.

    Drove to Bragg Creek, and the car barely broke down at all. Only on the way up, just after getting on high-way 8, the fuel pump failed. Probably due to vapor lock, but it did recover after about 5 minutes of waiting.. No biggie..but I probably should fix that. Could be dangerous. The drone of the exhaust wasn't that bad, and we were actually able to listen to music, and carry on a conversation.

    Well, the car is back on the road. Had it appraised on Wednesday, and no surprises, it's worth $16,000. Insured on Friday, registered Saturday.

    On Saturday, I also changed the oil, installed the new 195 thermostat, changed the coolant, fixed my shift-knob, cleaned the K&N filter, and dusted off the engine bay. Then I gassed, washed, and adjusted the tire-pressure.

    Did some night-time driving, boy do I ever need to adjust those head-lights. Bright as hell, but they are aiming straight up. Hardly illuminate the road, and definately piss off the drivers ahead of me. Also did some tearing around. Good performance, but I think it needs some new plugs and wires.
